UK blocks Russia's draft UN Security Council statement on Skripal poisoning case

UK blocks Russia's draft UN Security Council statement on Skripal poisoning case | 15 March 2018 | The UK has blocked a UN Security Council statement drafted by Russia, which called for an "urgent and civilized" investigation into the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury. "The Russia-proposed March 14 project of a short and fact-based UNSC press statement calling for an urgent and civilized investigation into a resonant chemical incident in Britain in line with OPCW standards was crudely blocked by this country's representatives under a politicized pretext," Russian UN mission spokesman Fedor Strzhizhovskiy said. The proposed draft, unlike earlier statements by the UK and the US, did not assign blame for the incident, instead, it urged "all member states concerned to consult and cooperate" in the investigation as prescribed by the Chemical Weapons Convention.

Russian envoy to UN asks about Salisbury case, says Moscow ready for open probe

Russian envoy to UN asks about Salisbury case, says Moscow ready for open probe | 14 March 2018 | Russia's envoy to the UN has demanded proof of Russia's involvement in the incident in Salisbury. He also asked members of UNSC to think who would benefit from these accusations. Vasily Nebenzya said the UK dragged this case to the UN rather than addressing a relevant international body in the Hague because it is scared of a professional probe...He said that the letter from Theresa May included unjustified accusations that Moscow had something to do with the use of toxic agents in Salisbury. "We were given 24 hours to confess to a crime," he said. "We do not speak the language of ultimatums."

FBI disciplinary office recommends firing former deputy director Andrew McCabe

FBI disciplinary office recommends firing former deputy director Andrew McCabe | 14 March 2018 | The FBI office that handles employee discipline has recommended firing the bureau's former deputy director over allegations that he authorized the disclosure of sensitive information to a reporter and misled investigators when asked about it -- though Justice Department officials are still reviewing the matter and have not come to a final decision, a person familiar with the case said. The recommendation from the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility is likely to add fuel to the political fire surrounding former deputy director Andrew McCabe, who abruptly stepped down from his post earlier this year but technically remained an FBI employee. McCabe was hoping to retire in days, when he becomes eligible for his full benefits...President Trump has long made McCabe a particular target of his ire, and the recommendation to fire the former No. 2 FBI official could give him new ammunition.

Stephen Hawking dies aged 76

Stephen Hawking dies aged 76 | 14 March 2018 | World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76. He died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said. The Briton was known for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular science books including A Brief History of Time. At the age of 22 Prof Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease.

US Appeals Court Upholds Texas's Ban on 'Sanctuary Cities'

US Appeals Court Upholds Texas's Ban on 'Sanctuary Cities' | 13 March 2018 | A federal appeals court Tuesday upheld the bulk of Texas's crackdown on "sanctuary cities" in a victory for the Trump administration as part of its aggressive fight against measures seen as protecting immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally. The ruling by a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans allows Texas to enforce what critics call the toughest state-level immigration measure since Arizona passed what critics called a "Show Me Your Papers" law in 2010. The law allows police officers to ask people during routine stops whether they're in the U.S. legally and threatens sheriffs with jail time for not cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

Tritium found in groundwater at former Wisconsin nuclear plant | 13 March 2018 | (WI) The company charged with decommissioning a shuttered nuclear power plant in Genoa, has reported elevated levels of radioactive material in groundwater. LaCrosseSolutions, a subsidiary of the nuclear waste disposal company EnergySolutions, announced Monday that it had detected elevated levels of tritium in a monitoring well near the former reactor building. EnergySolutions spokesman Mark Walker said there was a reading of 24,200 picocuries per liter recorded on Feb. 14 in a monitoring well 25 feet below ground. Dairyland Power Cooperative workers at the neighboring coal-fired generator were instructed to stop drinking well water on March 6, although test results received Monday indicated water from the on-site well is safe to drink [!?!], according to LaCrosseSolutions.

Trump's pick for new CIA chief dogged by secret prisons

Trump's pick for new CIA chief dogged by secret prisons | 13 March 2018 | Gina Haspel, the veteran CIA undercover officer President Donald Trump picked on Tuesday to head the agency, is supported by many in the U.S. intelligence community but has faced criticism for overseeing a secret CIA prison in Thailand where detainees were tortured. Intelligence officers who served with her, and congressional officials said that in 2002, during Republican President [sic] George W. Bush's administration, she was responsible for the secret prison code-named "Cat's Eye." Two suspected members of the al Qaeda militant group were subjected to waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques at the facility. Three years later, still during Bush's presidency, she carried out an order to destroy videotapes of the waterboarding, which simulates drowning and is considered a form of torture, according to those people.

House Republicans: No collusion between Trump and Russia

House Republicans: No collusion between Trump and Russia | 12 March 2018 | Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have completed a draft report concluding there was no collusion or coordination between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia. The finding is sure to please the White House and enrage panel Democrats who have not yet seen the document. After a yearlong investigation, Texas Rep. Mike Conaway (R) says the committee has finished conducting dozens of witness interviews and will share the report with Democrats on Tuesday.

President Trump arrives in California to inspect border wall prototypes

President Trump arrives in California to inspect border wall prototypes | 13 March 2018 | President Trump arrived in California Tuesday where he reviewed several design prototypes for his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. "The border wall is truly our first line of defense," Trump said in remarks after a briefing with officials from Customs and Border Patrol and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The president's visit is his first to the country's most populous state since taking office, and comes just one week after his Department of Justice announced its plan to sue California over "obstructing federal immigration enforcement efforts."

Volkswagen ordered to rehire employee suspected of trying to join ISIS

Volkswagen ordered to rehire employee suspected of trying to join ISIS | 13 March 2018 | A German court has ruled that Volkswagen should reinstate an employee that was fired on suspicion of terrorism-related activities. The company failed to prove that he poses a genuine threat...a regional labor court in the state of Lower Saxony ruled on Monday. The person in question is a German citizen of Algerian descent, identified only as Samir B. He worked as an assembly worker at one of the Volkswagen plants in the city of Wolfsburg, located around 90 km (55.9 miles) east of Hannover. Volkswagen's lawyers argued that the man issued threats against his colleagues, reportedly telling them they "will all die." They also told the court that they believed he could potentially stage a terrorist attack at the plant...All these facts appeared to carry insufficient weight for the Lower Saxony court, however, which deemed his dismissal invalid.

Pennsylvania special election: Everything you need to know about Rick Saccone, Conor Lamb | 13 March 2018 | The hard-fought battle between Republican Rick Saccone and Democrat Conor Lamb ends today as voters decide who will replace former Congressman Tim Murphy in Pennsylvania's 18th District. Lamb, 33, of Mt. Lebanon, is a Marine veteran and former federal prosecutor.

Rex Tillerson Out as Trump's Secretary of State, Replaced by Mike Pompeo

Rex Tillerson Out as Trump's Secretary of State, Replaced by Mike Pompeo | 13 March 2018 | President Trump on Tuesday ousted his secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, extending a shake-up of his administration, 14 months into his tumultuous presidency, and potentially transforming the nation's economic and foreign policy. Mr. Trump announced he would replace Mr. Tillerson with Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director and former Tea Party congressman, who forged a close relationship with the president and is viewed as being more in sync with Mr. Trump's America First credo. "We were not really thinking the same," Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House, explaining his decision to replace Mr. Tillerson.

Russia won't respond to UK ultimatum until samples of alleged chemical weapon received - Lavrov

Russia won't respond to UK ultimatum until samples of alleged chemical weapon received - Lavrov | 13 March 2018 | Moscow will not respond to the British request about a clandestine Soviet chemical weapon allegedly used in an ex-double agent's poisoning until a sample of the agent is provided, the Russian foreign minister said. On Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May said a chemical weapon developed under a secret Soviet program dubbed Novichok was used in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal. May demanded that Russia provide details of the program, saying otherwise London would consider the poisoning an attack directed by the Russian government. The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that it had summoned British Ambassador to Moscow Laurie Bristow.

Pentagon to Congress: You Can't Stop Us from Fueling Saudi Arabia's War in Yemen

Pentagon to Congress: You Can't Stop Us from Fueling Saudi Arabia's War in Yemen | 09 March 2018 | On February 28, Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Chris Murphy (D-CT), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) introduced Senate Joint Resolution 54, a resolution that seeks to end U.S. support for Saudi Arabia's war in on Yemen. Even before the resolution was introduced, the Department of Defense responded with the extraordinary claim that Congress lacked the legal authority to "override the President's determination as Commander in Chief" and end the United States involvement in the conflict...The Pentagon's claim that Congress lacks the power to limit U.S. involvement in the Yemeni civil war is an even more serious encroachment on Congress's constitutional authority over the military.

UK's May says 'highly likely' Russia behind nerve attack on spy

UK's May says 'highly likely' Russia behind nerve attack on spy | 12 March 2018 | British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday it was "highly likely" that Moscow was responsible for the poisoning in England of Russian former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter using a military-grade nerve agent. May told parliament that either the Russian state was directly responsible for the poisoning or it had allowed the nerve agent to get into the hands of others. London has given Russia until the end of Tuesday to explain its use.

Three package bombings in Texas are linked, police say; two people killed

Three package bombings in Texas are linked, police say; two people killed | 12 March 2018 | Residents of a home on the eastern edge of Austin rose Monday to find a package that they weren't expecting outside the front door...That's when, according to police, it exploded. Someone had placed a bomb inside. The blast killed a 17-year-old boy and injured a woman. A few hours later, about five miles south, a 75-year-old woman found a similar package on her porch. When she picked it up, it detonated, sending her to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, officials said. Investigators quickly realized that the bombings strongly resembled a March 2 case involving a package that exploded and killed a man in his northeast Austin home. As hundreds of thousands of visitors are swarming Austin for the annual South by Southwest festival, which began Friday and runs through March 17, police said they had linked the three package bombings -- raising fears that someone is trying to terrorize the Texas capital during the city's biggest event of the year.

Hawaii refuses to release internal records about the January missile alert that left islanders fearing a nuclear blast

Hawaii refuses to release internal records about the January missile alert that left islanders fearing a nuclear blast -- For nearly two months, Gov. David Ige's office has refused to release information showing how the Hawaii missile alert was handled --Ige's office has declined to release phone logs, text messages, instant messages and calendars related to the missile alert | 12 March 2018 | Hawaii officials have repeatedly pointed to a low-level state employee and a breakdown in his agency's leadership as the main cause for a January missile alert that left hundreds of thousands of islanders thinking they might die in a nuclear blast. But efforts to find out more about what other top officials did that day have been stymied at the highest levels of state government. Hawaii law says opening the government to public scrutiny 'is the only viable and reasonable method of protecting the public's interest.' But for nearly two months, Gov. David Ige's office has refused to provide information requested by The Associated Press that could show how he and other officials handled the crisis.

FBI Insiders Blow Whistle on Massive Las Vegas Cover Up; Agents Told Not to Investigate Key Evidence in Mandalay Bay Massacre

FBI Insiders Blow Whistle on Massive Las Vegas Cover Up; Agents Told Not to Investigate Key Evidence in Mandalay Bay Massacre | 12 March 2018 | The "official" narrative you've been fed by the FBI and Las Vegas officials about the massacre at Mandalay Bay that claimed 58 lives is purely fiction, a polished story contrived to cover up the disturbing facts surrounding the worst mass shooting ever in the United States, according the FBI insiders and high-ranking intelligence officials. And now, after months of corporate-infused spin...and outright lies from officials in the FBI and the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, federal agents and intelligence officials are spilling the beans about what really happened on and before the Oct. 1 massacre. "It's a movie script that was written after the shooting to rewrite what really happened," one FBI agent said. "The investigation is an entirely different story that we are not allowed to talk about. If we do and get caught, we get fired and probably charged (criminally)."

House Intelligence Committee ending Russia probe, says no collusion found

House GOP ending Russia probe, says no collusion found | 12 March 2018 | The House Intelligence Committee is shutting down its contentious investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the top Republican leading the probe announced on Monday. The committee will interview no more witnesses and Republicans are in the process of preparing their final report, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) told reporters. A draft of that roughly 150-page report will be delivered to committee Democrats for review on Tuesday. The draft document asserts that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, the most politically charged question examined by the committee. It will also contradict an official U.S. intelligence community assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin showed a "preference" for Donald Trump during the race -- another assertion that Trump has disputed.

Student paper apologizes for printing photo of conservative scholar

Student paper apologizes for printing photo of conservative scholar | 08 March 2018 | The editor-in-chief of a student newspaper at Middlebury College has personally apologized for running a photo of conservative scholar Charles Murray on the front page. In an "Editor's Note" published online last week, Editor-in-Chief of The Middlebury Campus, Ethan Brady, penned an extensive apology for publishing the photo of Murray, acknowledging that the decision could have come across as "jarring." According to Brady, the decision to publish the photograph sparked a "heated debate" among the editors last week, with most of the editorial staff opposing the idea.

WH unveils proposals to 'harden' schools in wake of Fla. shooting

WH unveils proposals to 'harden' schools in wake of Fla. shooting | 11 March 2018 | The Trump administration on Sunday unveiled a series of proposals on school safety and gun restrictions in the wake of the recent shooting in Florida, including a push for states to provide firearms training for school staff members...The administration will also not push for universal background checks or an increase in the age requirement to purchase a rifle. Instead, as part of an effort to "harden" American schools, officials said the administration will provide assistance to states to arm teachers, encourage them to pass laws keeping guns away from dangerous individuals and call on Congress to pass legislation strengthening the national background check system.

180 troops sent to Salisbury after Russian ex-double agent poisoning

180 troops sent to Salisbury after Russian ex-double agent poisoning | 10 March 2018 | Up to 180 troops are being sent to the city where Russian ex-double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned last Sunday. They will help with the removal of contaminated items linked to the crime. The police and defence ministry have confirmed they will be sending Armed Forces personnel to Salisbury in order to handle items in the area where Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were found slumped on a bench last Sunday...Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey, one of the first officers to respond, was also left seriously ill. It is now understood that Bailey was poisoned at Skripal's home, according to Sky News. That has led to the theory that Skripal and his daughter had been poisoned at the ex-MI6 agent's house in Christie Miller Road, and not the restaurant Zizzi where they dined before collapsing.

250 officers from 8 units: UK diverts 'enormous resources' to probe Russian ex-spy's poisoning | 11 March 2018 | Amid hysteria surrounding the mysterious poisoning of Sergei Skripal, Britain is dedicating a significant part of the country's anti-terrorism capacity to look for Moscow's hand in the former Russian double agent's misfortune. The UK government has diverted significant resources, with eight out of Britain's 11 anti-terrorism units currently helping to investigate the poisoning of former GRU agent Sergei Skripal, Home Secretary Amber Rudd revealed, at a time when a "severe" international terrorism threat hangs over Britain. The UK believes that Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were exposed to a nerve agent. Following the incident, authorities managed to collect 240 pieces of evidence and have identified some 200 witnesses to the crime, Rudd said, noting that 250 officers are taking part in the investigation.

Trump in full campaign mode at Pennsylvania rally

Trump in full campaign mode at Pennsylvania rally | 10 March 2018 | President Trump was in full campaign mode on Saturday at a rally for Republican congressional hopeful Rick Saccone, returning to the bombastic, unrestrained candidate from 2016.
